Helpful Holiday Info:
Greg Farris, a nutrition and exercise consultant, is posting, for the next 10 days, tips on how to stay lean and on top of your fitness goals during the holiday season. You can follow him at https://www.instagram.com/myobrain/, now on to the tips…

STAY OFF THE SCALE

Regardless of how good/bad you eat during holiday meals, stay off the scale for the next 2-3 days.

Excess sodium and calories will cause a big weight jump, but its only temporary. You can’t put on 5 lbs of fat in one day, it’s mostly water retention. Save yourself stress and wait a few days to weigh-in.
